NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – New Hanover County Emergency Management, in partnership with North Carolina Emergency Management, will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, March 22 to introduce the community to the North Carolina Resilient Redevelopment Planning (NCRRP) program, which was established by the North Carolina General Assembly.
The purpose of the NCRRP is to deliver a roadmap for community rebuilding and revitalization assistance for the communities impacted by Hurricane Matthew. The program empowers communities across the state to prepare locally-driven plans to identify redevelopment strategies, innovative reconstruction projects, and other needed actions.
A total of three meetings will be held with New Hanover County officials, staff, municipal leaders and the public on local damage from Hurricane Matthew, needs to rebuild, and redevelopment strategies.
“These meetings will introduce our community to the NCRRP program,” said Steven Still, Emergency Management/911 director. “The public’s input is critical to help develop the county’s resilient redevelopment strategy so that it can be included in the state’s final plan.”
The first public meeting will be held on March 22 at New Hanover County’s Emergency Operations Center, located at 220 Government Center Drive, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The public’s feedback and comments will be requested at the meeting.
The next two public meetings are planned for Tuesday, April 4, Noon-1 p.m., and Wednesday, April 19, 5:30-6:30 p.m. A public notice for the March 22 meeting can be seen here.
